Vin Diesel is bringing the Chronicles of Riddick back on the big screen with the help of writer/director David Twohy.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.

In the director’s cut the ending of the Chronicles of Riddick, he killed the antagonist and became the new leader of the Necromonger army due to their, “You keep what you kill,” adage. In the theatrical cut after defeating the antagonist, the Necromonger fleet leaves the planet Helium Prime, sparing it.

So by ‘betrayed by his own kind’, does the synopsis imply the Furyan survivors, or the Necromonger army that he now commands in the director’s cut?

I always found the Riddick films ridiculous, and this looks to be the same — but nevertheless, they’re highly entertaining. I entirely look forward to the next installment.
